He was born on Jan. 7, 1934, in Dubuque, son of George Roussel and Catherine (Hemenway) Davidsaver. He married Mary O'Donnell on April 30, 1955, in Dubuque.

George was a proud member of the Marine Corps., serving from November 1951 to July 1954 in the Korean War.

He was a cement mason and worked for several Dubuque contractors and was a 40-year member of the Dubuque Operative Plasterers and Cement Mason's Local 561.

In his spare time, he loved to bow hunt and fish and was a lifelong Chicago Bear and Chicago White Sox fan. There was not a football or baseball trivia question that he could not answer.
